Wing W2888; Graesse VII, 457; Lowndes 7, 2942; New Cambridge Bibliography. 1, 2241. Lowndes states that two editions appeared in 1653. Proeme (preface), poetic self-description by the author. Frontispiece engraved portrait of James I attributed to Vaughan (DNB XXI, 553). Engraved initial letters. C.H. Firth notes that this work was an example of "another class of historians" who "undertook not merely to relate events but to explain their causes, and to reveal what they called the secret history of the times." See Firth, "The Development of the Study of Seventeenth-Century History" in Transactions of the Royal Historical Society 7 (1913), 27. Lowndes notes that this work was "not very favorable to the character of the monarch," and DNB calls Wilson's work "strongly prejudiced against the rule of the Stuarts (DNB XXI, 553). Front cover separated. Covers worn, especially at edges. No spine label. Rear inside hinge and outside joint cracked. Frontispiece and title separated, chipped at edges. Previous owner's name on title. Tanning and some foxing throughout text. Pagination irregular but text is continuous.

Jacob Bauer verzeichnet in seiner "Bibliotheca Librorum Rariorum" schon 1771 diese Ausgabe des Werkes Malvezzis als "Rarus libellus". Die Erstausgabe dieses Werkes erschien 1635 unter dem Titel "Ritratto del privato politico cristiano".

Stamperia d'Ignatio de' Lazzeri, Roma, 1653. In 4, pp. (4) + 904 + (8). Manca l'antiporta incisa. Bruniture alle cc. Legatura inÂp. pg. coeva con mancanza nella parte inferiore del dorso e abrasione del rivestimento ai piatti. Edizione originale del solo primo volume - mancante della tavola - di questa ponderosa opera di Bartoli (il secondo era dedicato alla storia della compagnia inÂGiappone, il terzo inÂCina).

His observations first appeared in English in 1615 and his text was soon regarded as a special authority on the Levant. He has been called the first 'classical tourist' of England.

ARVIEUX, Laurent d'.
This edition not in Atabey; Blackmer; KVK; NCC; Saalmink; Tiele; WorldCat. A surprisingly rare re-issue of the first Dutch edition of D'Arvieux's Voyage, translated by Gerard Kuipers. Dressed in local costume, D'Arvieux travelled widely in the Levant and was well-versed in Arabic, Turkish, Persian, Hebrew and Syriac languages. He resided in Sidon (or Saïda) from 1653 to 1664, when he was sent on a mission to the Arabs of Mount Carmel, which is narrated in the present work. The account includes a general description of the traditions and customs of nomadic tribes and is illustrated with 3 fine plates. The first edition was edited and posthumously published by Jean La Roque in 1717. The present Dutch edition is a re-issue with a new title-page of the 1780 edition, printed from the same setting of type, and apparently unrecorded.Binding with some light wear, otherwise in very good condition.

1653. BOSSE, A[braham]. Moyen Universel de Pratiquer la Perspective sur les Tableaux. [2], 80 pp. Illustrated with additional engraved title, an engraved title-page for the explanation of the plates (verso is plate one), plus 32 engraved plates, two of which are folding. 8vo., 210 x 130 mm, bound in contemporary speckled French calf, red morocco spine label stamped in gilt. Paris: chez l'auteur, 1653. BOUND WITH: Le peintre converty aux precises et universelles regles de son art. [8], 72 pp. Illustrated with an engraved dedication. Paris: chez l'auteur, 1667. First Edition of each work. A single bound volume of works on perspective and painting by the prolific author on the subjects, Abraham Bosse (1602-1676). Moyen Universel furthered Bosse's controversial promotion of the artistic theories of the French geometer Girard Desargues (1591-1661), who emphasized the importance of an artist's technical understanding of perspective. In it, Bosse discusses and illustrates the application of perspective to the complicated anamorphic designs on vaults and ceilings. Bosse's views lead to his famous dispute with Charles Le Brun, who preferred to deemphasize the technical aspects of art, believing more in an inherent genius that made an artist great. The dispute would end in Bosse's expulsion from the Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture, an institution he helped found. The second work, Le peintre converty, appropriately bound with Moyen Universel, presents a discussion between representatives of different arts on the importance of perspective in each of their disciplines.

The English Navy gained control of the seas around England, and forced the Dutch to accept an English monopoly on trade with England and English colonies."

Ulm, Balthasar Kühne 1653.. Mit gr. Titelholzschnitt und 2 Textholzschnitten. 31 S. HLwd. um 1850. 4°. 17,4 x 15,3 cm. Schmitt/Appenzeller, Balthasar Kühn 147; nicht im VD 17 (das allerdings eine Ausgabe von 1626 bei Saur kennt, vgl. 1:700332Y); für mich nur ein Exemplar im Ulmer Stadtarchiv nachweisbar, sonst für mich bibliographisch nicht zu ermitteln. - Der Titelholzschnitt zeigt einen Fisch, Kescher, Korbreuse und 2 weitere Fischereiutensilien, wohl einen Muschelsieb und eine Angel; einer der Textholzschnitte zeigt einen weiteren Fisch zur Illustration eines noch nicht das Fangmaß habenden Tieres. - Der einfache Einband etwas berieben und mit kl. Verlusten am Deckenbezug. Vorderer Spiegel mit handschriftl. Eintrag: "Hafner. In Ulm auf dem alten Markt gekauft anno 1856". Tls. etwas gebräunt.
